Hill Side House

The Hill Side House is a conceptual design for a 2 bedroom villa.  Where many normally shy away from odd shapes buildings, this concept explores how to take advantage of non-perpendicular shapes and create spatiality in odd directions.  Architecture that is made to fit, and the shifts of the walls direction creates that little extra space only where it’s needed.

Small shifts are also found on the floors, we prefer to keep our buildings close to the terrain when building on hillsides, by doing so we create a better connections between the building and the garden, by building the house partly into the hillside we isolate it from the sun, gain from the colder terrain and use the retaining wall aso a big cooling element and keep the room temperature down.

Natural ventilation, we draw cold air from the space under the house and ventilate it out through high windows mounted to the roof.
